In 2007 Xianjv County held grand celebrations to celebrate the 1000th year of the founding of the county.

Cultural Characteristics: Over the years the Xiyan Temple that once stood here have been ruined by the weather, but the scenery that has attracted emperors remains and is even more beautiful.

Two Mountain Supports Sun, Celestial Pillar Stand in the sky, Lion Peak, Celestial Folds Stone, Elephant’s Trunk Block the Ravine, Futou Rock are named for their unique shape. Sleeping Beauty, which is in front of the Shili Valley resembles a freehand painting of some celestial being. Seen from far away, it is like a young girl sleeping against the cliff with the clear eyebrows of Pine Trees. It is said that the head of Virgin Group, Liu Yifei, has cheerfully called it “Fairy Sister.” Unfortunately, the eyebrows have been ruffled by the wind, and the stone that has been watching the beauty for billions of years has gotten several wrinkles. There are four gates leading in four directions in the scenic area, all of which are made of two perilous peaks, waiting for the tourists. The southern gate is the narrowest one which is just 50 meters wide. It is said that it turns to the peak of Yandang Mountain in Leqing City after 100 curves. It seems to be a one-hundred-mile gallery that is set for celestials themselves. There is a smooth mountain path along the winding valley where you can appreciate the ten-mile valley, steep cliffs, high peaks, heavy clouds, natural sounds and the water. There are 11 waterfalls in a row. The first, Elephant Trunk Waterfall, is named for the mountains on both sides, which look like elephants, and the trunk is the fall.
At first sight, Jade Bowl Pond looks like a silver spoon, and Ingot Pond resembles a gold ingot. Besides the majesty of the waterfalls, there are many other wonderful things to appreciate.
